Thanks to Godofthunder for sharing this! Mega blend is right. Tart citrus notes on the nose, musty. Pours a dark golden color. Tart citrusy with old wood notes. super funky, sour dry finish. Amazing to get to try!

caesar (6428) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2011
Bottled at In de Wildeman, 2009 version. Slight hazy orange golden color, huge rocky head like champagne. And that’s one of the first things that come into mind while taking the glass towards the nose: champagne like aroma’s, grapes, pineapple, slight citrus, mango. A lot of (tropical) fruit so to say, together with the traditional horseblanket and barnyard aroma, but very fruity. Moderate tartness, slight sweet. Not as harsh as some Cantillons, but full bodied and smooth (for a gueuze), champagne-like. Good stuff, but bloody expensive!

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011
2011 Bottle. Pours a nice hazy orange/dark blond color with a frothy white head. Aroma is filled with funk, old musty notes, barnyard, wet hay, vinous notes, white grapes, green apples and vinegar. The flavor is super complex and fairly tart/sour, with lots of funk. I get loads of barnyard, wet hay, green apples, white grapes and other light fruits, white balsamic vinegar, white wine notes and some dusty old notes. The body is medium with a pretty dry mouthfeel. Overal a really good Gueuze, definietly something worth seeking out!

deyholla (9816) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Poured a cloudy/hazy gold with a white head that started and remained at the edges. Aroma had a light horse blanket note with tart to sour fruits and a bit of lemon. Flavor was similar with a nice funk note that worked well with the sour fruits that grew to a slight acidity in the finish.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
2011 bottle. Amber gold, rocky white head like a cloud. Old sock, dust, and citrus nose, very musty. Flavor of grapefruit and dust, lightly bitter in the high carbonation, which isolates and suppresses the flavors, hay and grapefruit emerging in the too dry, too bitter finish. Nice, but the structure is way off.

gyllenbock (7229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden/orange with a nice fluffy head. Very inviting and fresh aroma of green apples, citrus, grass, wood and horse blanket. The taste was also very good, I really liked the sourness of this beer. The aftertaste was not that long.

2015-02-23, corked bottle n. 023342, vintage 2011, bb 18.10.2030, 9-4-7-3-16=39
Hazy, with a large frothy head, not persistent. The aroma is intense, orange peel and moldy cellar, pungent. In the world of Gueuze, this is on the mellow size, with a good body, still a dry beer; the acidity is moderate, the astringency prevails, and it has a strong orange component.
Very good, but the flavor doesn’t impress as much as the aroma, and the final is weak.

2011-07-12, corked bottle n. 16007, vintage 2009, bottled 16.10.2008, 3+ years old, 8-4-8-4-17=41
Cloudy golden color; generous head. The aroma is powerful, with loads of citrusy acidity, magnesia, cobwebs and some dry cellar smell, that grows later. The mouthfeel is quite dry, very lemony at first, but also with a subtle malt backbone and a surprising spicy touch; very sour but without excess; and the final gets full bodied as much as it is possible for a Gueuze, and certainly the result of the higher gravity. Very pleasant ans easy to drink
Different, edgy, very good.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 24, 2011
A: The pour is a hazed golden orange color with a rather tall white head. S: An intense lemon aroma to this gueuze. In fact, the lemon juice and lemon zest really dominate. Light vinegar notes with mild funk, mostly earthy and musty in nature. T: Like with the nose, intensely sour and lemony. Not too much depth/complexity or funk. There is a bit of grass, earth, and must. Maybe some damp, old wood, too. M: Medium in body with a very high carbonation. O: A decent gueuze, but not really amazing, especially for the price/difficulty of acquisition.

dchmela (3002) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
2009 bottle thanks to 4.4 40. Chunky reddish pink pour with a thin white head. Horse blanket, vinegar, lightly acidic aroma. Taste is light tart sour lemon, not puckering, but gentle with notes of cherry skin tartness. Not a fave style of mine, but this is light, dry and wonderfully tasty.
